Sadly, gun control advocates will sometimes go to absurd lengths to try to take away our rights as gun owners. Some of their efforts through the media and through political means have been downright ridiculous, but they have a new tactic which many people don’t yet know about.
If you’re like most people, you go to your doctor to get health advice for either preventative purposes (that is the point of an annual physical, isn’t it?) or for treatment because you are ill. However, not all doctors are really there to help you. Lance D. Johnson writes,
A coalition of healthcare providers wants to end the “epidemic” of gun violence and implement an “evidence-based policy” on guns. The organization is called SAFE (Scrubs Addressing the Firearm Epidemic). While reducing violence is a noble goal, the group isn’t focused on eliminating the actual triggers that cause violence or the conditions of the heart that breed violent outcomes.
Instead, they want to get as many firearms out of the hands of law abiding citizens as possible. SAFE merely wants to give doctors authority over patient’s second amendment rights, to get patients to talk about the guns they have in their homes, so more action can be taken on guns. As the medical profession gathers intel about gun owners and puts firearm ownership on healthcare records, liberal doctors can make a case that certain gun owners are mentally or physically unfit to own a firearm.
To make it even more disturbing, if your doctor gathering information on you to try to take your Second Amendment rights from you isn’t enough, some people say that it is these very same doctors who prescribe medication which makes people less safe for gun ownership (a large number of mass shooters were taking prescribed psychiatric drugs such as anti-depressants).
In other words, doctors could be causing the problem and trying to make the potential for loss of life worse by reducing the number of ways to defend yourself. Whether intended or not, it’s a one-two punch to everyday Americans’s rights and safety.
What we really need in the medical profession is a return to doing what works to improve people’s health, not a politicization of the profession.
The problem we face is the lack of total understanding the human mind. Having worked for five years with mentally challenged men, I find that many serious brain damages that they suffer from do not make them criminals. I also follow the newscasts by PBS and have had lengthy discussions with a brain surgeon and a psychiatrist, it only confirms the knowledge that we still lack a lot of knowledge of how the human brain works and any sure fire way of surgery or any other kinds of treatment that solves mental issues. If the medical profession has no solid answers yet,certainly a judge lacks sufficient capability to decide the mental condition of people.
gun haters do not understand that gun owners are the modern day minutemen, if they keep on they will end up like the British did
RIGHT YOU ARE Merlin.
and is the very reason those LAWLESS COMMUNIST DEMORATS, WITH SOME RINOS ARE TRYING SO HARD TO TRY AND DISARM WE THE PEOPLE.
a WELL INFORMED AND ARMED PEOPLE CAN’T BE ENSLAVED, and we can STOP THEN FOR NOW, THEIR TRYING TO IMPLEMENT THROUGH THE UN THEIR ONE WORLD GOVT.
You are fucking idiot. Gun nuts put their family at risk. More often accidental within family deaths occur. Now I know you will counter this would not have happened if adults followed good safety procedures but many do not and family members die. My father knew how to shoot a gun because he was in the service but we never had guns in the home and at age 74 I have never owned a gun and never fired a gun. Look up gun deaths in countries that do not have the crazy NRA, like England and Scotland and see how much safer they are.
You need to improve your spelling also. They are Democrats.
Take the guns away and we become the UNITED STATES OF SLAVES !!! Look at what Hitler did you have all your rights taken away and they don’t like something you said. you are Dead. BEN FRANKLIN SAID. YOU CANNOT TRUST A GOVERNMENT THAT WONT TRUST ITS PEOPLE WITH GUNS. !!!!
Hey Stewart: How about the Union of Soviet Socialist States of America (USSSA)? ¶ PS, i didn’t know that Ben Franklin said that U cannot trust a government that won’t trust its people with guns, but it is CERTAINLY true! Look at what Hitler, Stalin, and Mao Tse-Tung did. Once the citizens ARE (present, past, and future tenses) disarmed, they are no longer citizens, but subjects. And then most of those governments (except the British, who still had freedom of speech and press for the longest time!) then murdered large numbers of the people. And governments SHOULD protect the people, not to murder them!
The Coalition of Healthcare Providers has killed more people than guns! On top of that, they don’t understand the Second Amendment. “The Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms Shall not be Infringed” The Coalition of Health Care Providers is full of crap. Shut up and take care of your patients!
I would never let a medical person know I have guns. I will tell them I’ve never had guns nor will I ever. I don’t consider it a lie, it’s none of their business.
